Emerson Network Power has introduced five capacities of the Liebert eXMUninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system for native 480 VAC configurations. The new models address critical applications with medium power 480 V requirements, while providing cost control, efficiency and speed of deployment. The 480 VAC models are available in 50 to 250 kVA/kW in the Americas.
With the addition of the new 480V AC models, the Liebert eXM UPS family now includes models ranging from 10 to 250kVA/kW and includes a comprehensive portfolio of native 208 V, 220 V,and 480 V products. Each offers a high efficiency solution for midsize data centers supporting bigger loads, said Steve McKinney, vice president, general manager of power management for Emerson Network Power. This UPS family meets the need for solutions that deliver lower first costs and ongoing operational savings, while allowing for flexibility and shorter deployment schedules in a dynamic IT environment.
The Liebert eXM UPS family includes flexible, optimized ancilliary cabinets. These include options for extended battery, maintenance bypass, distribution, transformer and paralleling.
All models of Liebert eXM UPS offer high operational and cost efficiencies. The ENERGY STAR qualified UPS delivers among the highest efficiency levels for midsize power applications. During double conversion mode, the transformer-free Liebert eXM UPS delivers up to 97 percent efficiency. When operating in energy-saving Eco-Mode, efficiency increases up to 99 percent. In addition, the unity power factor design delivers the highest level of power capacity, reducing cabling and installation costs compared to non-unity designs, and saving more than 30 percent in floor space over comparable configured systems.
All Liebert eXM UPS models can incorporate the integrated Alber battery monitoring option, which improves the reliability of backup batteries through continuous testing and reporting. Also available, the LIFE Services, which provides robust lifecycle management via continuous remote diagnostics and proactive service dispatch. Customers can depend on experts who are prepared to interpret advanced service level data using IP-based communications to anticipate, identify, diagnose and respond to problems before they can cause downtime or hinder performance.
Centralized operational control can be realized through the data center infrastructure management system, theTrellis platform to improve overall control, visibility and infrastructure performance.
